. and when something really developed that was important for the defense department and it involved a danger to our government or could do damage to the department or they needed something really seriously needed it, often times in this government we can't respond and we don't respond effective lifment they would go to daniel inouye and it would be fixed. because they understood that peace through strength was the best way to avoid war and they felt a sense of great response tobblet ensure that the defense department was not damaged on their watch. and their experience and judgment is such that they could tell the difference between complaints and real danger to america's defense capability. i would just say, mr. president, that daniel inouye has established a record that places him among the finest senators to ever serve here, one of the finest hunal beings to ever serve here. and i want to say as a member of the armed services committee how much i appreciated his particular commitment to ensuring the american defense capability remains second to none and his willingness to take the steps n
don't need a magazine with 100 rounds in it, that's notself defense, that's not hunting. and how we can back up -- yes, people have a right to protect their family, but you don't need all of this to protect your family. he did the opposite. he said let's put armed guards in the school, let's arm teachers. let's remember now, we have seen this year education budgets cut. we don't have money to give teachers raises. we had a teachers strike in chicago. we don't have money to do things that teachers need, but we'll find money to arm them, to train them, to buy them guns, ammunition. what are we saying? so we can arm teachers, but we can't give teachers money to give them the ability to be better educators? to me that's the wrong message to send. >> two sides are looking for meaningful contributions. the fact there was a gun buy-back program, the day after christmas, 1500 rifles and handguns were taken back by police in exchange for groceries and a cash back program there in los angeles. hugely successful. meanwhile, arizona's attorney general is proposes a voluntary programs where scho
to replace secretary of defense leon panetta. joining me now to look at all this: james mann, long-time journalist and author of "the obamians: the struggle inside the white house to redefine american power"; and david ignatius, foreign affairs columnist for the "washington post." david, as we heard the president say, a well-known man around washington and foreign policy circles. what strengths does john kerry bring? >> well, the first is the one the president mentioned. he has stature, he's well-known. he's being doing foreign policy from the senate for almost three decades. he's a person well-known to leaders around the world. the second thing that people don't know as much about is that he served as an emissary for president obama in some very delicate situations. the president sent him to afghanistan to try to make a better relationship with president karzai there. kerry is widely believed to have been a success in that. he was sent to pakistan for similar mission to deal with president zardari. it's less well-known that he conveyed a message, written message to hamas to try to

. that will not be enough. what the underlying bill does to eliminate the defense sequester cuts president obama has called dangerous, it says, the only people who should get food stamps are people who qualify for food stamps. that is right. the underlying bill says the only folks who should get food stamps are those who qualify. it turns out, like every federal program, there is fraud. some folks are receiving taxpayer-sponsored benefits today who have not earned them, who do not find themselves entitled to them by virtue of their circumstances. because this bill aims to eliminate the fraud, folks come to the floor and say, why are republicans throwing hungry people out during christmas. it is outrageous. we cannot have a conversation about serious things in a serious time. the outrageous pointed to last night, what happened last night is exactly what i would hope would happen in a conversation like this. almost to a person, every democratic member in that rules committee said, all we have in front of us is a tax bill. all we have in front of us is a tax bill and every one in america knows the problem is
warning tonight about north korea's missile program. south korean defense officials saying the north's new missiles can now reach the u.s. mainlands, comes from evidence they recovered after the banned missile test that happened earlier this month. but they say they're still not sure if north korea has mastered reentry technology which would be necessary for any inter-continental ballistic missile to hit an actual target. south korean officials also say they've found evidence the launch was meant to test missile technology, not for peaceful space purposes as the north has claimed. president obama and the first family tonight on vacation in hawaii, he and the first lady attended a memorial service for the late senator daniel aa a inouye he died this past monday at age 88. and didn't the president have a personal connection to the senator? >> good evening, harris, he did. they're both from hawaii, different generations, but the president remembers that as a child, he looked up to senator inouye, on the watergate committee and doing public service more than 50 years in the senate, but we shou

more points of defense in a school than just one armed guard that would be very visible and if someone were maniacal enough to come and attack a school they'd probably take that guard out first and there are school districts around the country and one in texas where i've spoken with the superintendent northwest of dallas, and the whole state of utah permits concealed carry of teachers and it's worked out very well. these have not become targets because i think most of the criminal class understands that an armed victim is too dangerous to take on, if they can go some other way to do their crime. >> there are some assumptions there and that is, of course, the question of mental health. you're seeing those of this side like to commit a crime and they're aware of these limitations and these challenges and we just look at columbine as senator feinstein was saying yesterday in addressing mr. lapierre's comment and she was saying look at columbine, there were two armed guards there. that did not work. >> they fled, whereas if you are under attack and you have a gun then it's rather reasonabl
on the possible nomination of senator hagel as the next secretary of defense. leon panetta has not announced a departure date. off and o fawn, chuck hagel's former staffers worked through the weekend trying to solidify support, but you hear concerns on both sides about his nomination. >> yeah. the thing is that will be causing some questions inside the senate particularly. there's been so much focused on susan rice, and the secretary of state. i don't know that people have been worrying as much about the next defense secretary. if there's anything you can say about him, he is his own man. while i think everyone likes him in the senate, it's not entirely clear how he would behave. there are some questions, for example, about his history on the homosexuals in the military. there's some questions about that. it's not entirely clear to me this will rise to the level as it did with susan rice, who remove her nomination in the last month or so. i don't know what the other options are, and with the secretary of state issue, you always had senator kerry as the option, which i think in the senate peo
, the cost of the war was not included in the budget except the military and the defense budget. but the additional costs were not reflected in the budget. there were always supplementals. so they didn't show as a deficit. a vendor ackley to the debt. so while the budgets were reasonable in that period of time, the actual spending didn't show in the budget and people didn't pay as much attention to the debt as they do today because it kept mounting and so we borrowed to pay for the war and in fact we didn't ask people to make sacrifices financially. >> there is a difference between borrowing in the future, paying for work and paying back words, we are having to pay right now. people might have felt differently if they had felt the pinch right at that time. we would have asked different questions and were asked, and i think that is one of the reasons we got where we are. and it's where we are. >> on appropriations could you have been any more vocal about it to provide us getting into this situation? >> welcome on was vocal about it. i don't know. when i got on the appropriations
and purposes the nominee for the defense secretary? >> the administration has done everything they can. chuck hagel is like a man, who was like susan rice, not nominated for anything. susan rice took a pelting for a job she was not officially nominated for. chuck hagel is someone who hasn't been nominated for secretary of defense but is someone who is rumored to be that person. i think we saw an indication of what the administration was doing to, in a way to protect hagel, and i'm thinking of specifically the criticisms of hagel and what he had said during the whole "don't ask, don't tell" fight and things that -- i'm sorry, about the nomination of jim hormel to be ambassador to luxembourg back in the '90s. he said the ambassador was openly aggressively homosexual. hagel took a pummelling for a few hours, few days, then miraculously, there was an apology from chuck hagel. there were phone calls from the white house to gay groups. >> seems to me it shows you the toughest place to be in washington right now is a moderate independent, especially if you're moving forward into the public light. bo
for secretary of defense -- chuck hayes cogel. how will these nominations go/ guest: chuck hagel has not been nominated yet. john kerry was announced by the white house on friday. the fact that kerry was announced does not bode well for the trial balloon of chalk .eguck hagel we have seen john mccain say they are going to vote for him. chuck hagel has been questioned by a number of republicans. lindsey graham is considered a more moderate republican. there is a concern with hagel and the pro-israel lobby. they tried engagement with iran for the first year of the administration and went to the toughest sanctions in history. hagel has been an opponent of those sanctions. if he changed his view, i think that would improve his chances. look at where he is on the foreign policy debate. obama has taken positions that are more to the center than hagel. host: if senator kerry becomes secretary of state, what does he bring? guest: john kerry will have to navigate the new relationship with political islam. as countries open up more and become more democratic, part is affiliated with the muslim brotherh

represent the last and most dogged line of german defense in all of italy. as he led his platoon in a flanking maneuver, three german machine guns opened fire from covered positions just 40 yards away, pinning his men to the ground. inouye stood up to the attack and was shot in the stomach. ignoring his wound, he proceeded to attack and destroy the first machine gun nest with hand grenades and fire from his thompson sub machine gun. after being informed of the severity of his wound by his platoon sergeant, he refused treatment and rallied his men for an attack on the second machine gun position which he also successfully destroyed before collapsing from blood loss. as his squad distracted the third machine gunner, inouye called toward the final bunker, eventually drawing within ten yards. as he raised himself up and cocked his right arm to throw his last grenade into the fighting position, a german inside fired a rifle grenade that struck him in the right elbow, severing most of his arm and leaving his own primed hand grenade reflexively clenched in a fist that suddenly didn't be
's further indication the president isn't serious about immigration. in their defense they said the immigration law is broken. while pro immigration activists welcome the policy change claiming current legislation is too aggressive the american civil liberties union today say reforms still don't go far enough. reading this the reforms do nothing to address the basic constitutional problem that led to the needless unlawful detention of both u.s. citizens and nonu.s. citizens alike with racial profiling and policing and counting on county dimes. whether you disagree with the new york policy or not the white house needs to do an awful lot more work to get the immigration right. >> the fridays before christmas we will talk about it more in the news. >>> a robbery caught on tape but the target is by no means random. this robber knew exactly what he was after and how to get it. also a young survivor of a mall shooting talking for the first time about coming face to face with a killer. and what she has to say about the gunman may surprise you. reliving the experience in her own words.

to get less protection than paper records. as the national association of defense attorneys has pointed out, since the 1870's, the government must get a warrant to look and read your mail, as is the case of katz versus the united states, the government has been required to have a warrant to tap your phone. however, under current law, your email, your text messages and other electronic communications do not receive the same level of protection as your phone calls do. why is a phone call deserving of more protection than your email or your text? justice soto mayor in u.s. versus jones, the recent supreme court case that says the government can't put a g.p.s. tracking device on your car without a warrant says this -- "i for one doubt that people would accept without complaint the warrantless disclosure of the government to the government of a list of every web site they have visited in the last week, month or year. i would not assume that all information voluntarily disclosed to some member of the public for unlimited purpose is for that reason alone disentitled to the fourth amendment pro
